2018 Vancouver Municipal Election Slate

There may be nearly 160 candidates running for 27 municipal government positions in Vancouver, but with Twitter wars, trolls, bigots and the usual assortment of also-rans and not-on-your-lifes, it’s particularly difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff for the 2018 version. Without further adieu, my slate, largely devoid of bad actors and hopefully about more than just housing.

Training with Real Power

If you like more accurate data and the ability to use power while riding on the road, a power meter may be a better choice for training than virtual power. However, early into my journey with a power meter and the change has required a few adjustments on my part. In the long run, I suspect I’ll be happier, overall.

I’m back

It’s been a while. In fact, it’s been nearly six months since I wrote a journal post of any kind. At the beginning of the year, I noted that I wanted to begin a daily practice of journaling. My success there, as with many of the things I mentioned, kinda went to hell in a handbasket. A very large portion of the past eight months has completely consumed us with the process of selling our townhouse and buying a Kitsilano condo.

The first major step to simplicity and a more minimalistic lifestyle is well under way. I know the end result will be worth it, but purging, disposing of and selling stuff, along with downsizing homes (and the inherent selling and buying process) feels anything but simple.
